Treacherous ice warning issued across Ayrshire

Treacherous ice may develop, at least in a few places, following freezing rain. Where it occurs, significant disruption is possible.

Valid 21:00 Saturday until 21:00 Sunday

Sporadic snowfall, mainly over higher ground of Scotland at first, may increasingly turn to freezing rain overnight Saturday into Sunday, whilst moving eastwards and expanding across other parts of Scotland and Northern England.

This freezing rain is likely to be quite localised, but where it does occur will rapidly cause icy and and somewhat treacherous stretches on roads and pavements. There is very low confidence in how extensive this freezing rain will be, although it is likely to fall in at least a few places within this warning area.

There is a small chance that it could become more widespread through the course of Sunday morning, especially across Scotland. Milder air will steadily arrive from the west during Sunday daytime, slowly confining the ice risk further east and south through the day, and mainly to higher ground.
